BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1875. 



Introduction. 



The word almanac is applied to an 
annual publication, giving the civil divis- 
ion of the year, the time of the rising and 
setting of the sun and moon, and the 
times at which the eclipses of both oc- 
cur, the times of high and low water, 
with various other astronomical phe- 
nomena. Almanacs were used at a very- 
early age, probably before the Chris- 
tian era, though it seems the first we have 
any special account of were published in 
A. D., 1150. 

Astronomy is a branch of science to 
which many nations have given consider- 
able attention; and wherever astronomy 
is cultivated, one of the results we have, 
is the making of almanacs.' It is said 
that the almanacs published by Regio- 
montanu3 in the fifteenth century, which 
contained only the eclipses and the pla- 
ces of the planets, were sold for ten 
crowns of gold. ($58.10.) 

As every family needs an almanac, 
and will have one if it possibly can, the 
idea was conceived of making it the me- 
dium for circulating other information 
besides that which it was originally de- 
signed to convey. Hence we have the 
Medical Almanac, the Health Almanac, 
the Political Almanac, the Agricultural 
Almanac, and the Religious Almanac. 

And to give the Brethren the advan- 
tages of an almanac containing useful 
information concerning church affairs in 
addition to the information usually con- 
tained in such publications, Bro. Holsin- 
ger commenced the publication of what 
he called the Brethren's Almanac. It was 
very acceptable to the Brethren, and it 
met with success. The brethren who pub- 
lish the Weekly Pilgrim, also commenced 
the publication of what they call the Pil- 
grim Almanac. This was also designed 
to be a church almanac. 

The parties concerned in publishing 
the two almanacs, thinking one church 
Almanac sufficient for the brotherhood, 
concluded to publish but one, 'and to 
unite together to publish it. So it is the 
design of the publishers to publish but 
one almanac hereafter. 



. The utility of the enterprise is ackowl- 
edged by the success it has met with, and 
it is hoped that the brotherhood will give 
it a liberal patronage. The publishers 
will endeavor to make it worthy of such 
a patronage. 



A Memoir of J. H. Umstad. 



BY J. QUINTEK. 



John Horning Umstad, was^born on 
the 1st of January, 1802, in Montgomery 
Co., Pa. He was married to Ann Brow 
er in 1829. He had four children, one son 
and three daughters. The son died in his 
childhood, and one of his daughters, Sa- 
rah, grown up, but unmarried, died sev- 
eral years ago, a very pious girl, and a 
member of the church of the Brethren. 
Two daughters survive their parents. 
Brother Umstad's wife died in 1871. His 
parents were not members of any relig- 
ious denomination; consequently he had 
no special religious training. He was 
lively in his nature, companionable, 
loved society, and while living after the 
world, enjoyed it as much as it is usually 
the lot of people to do. 

In the fall of 1831 a revival of Christi- 
anity commenced in the community in 
which Bro. Umstad lived. There were 
but few members of the church of the 
brethren in that neighborhood, the near- 
est organized church being the Coventry 
Church, in Chester Co., one of the minis- 
ters of which was Bro. John Price, the fa- 
ther of the minister of the same name, 
now in that church. One of the few mem- 
bers who resided in the community, was 
Sister Isabella Fitzwater, Bro. Umstad's 
sister. She was an exemplary and de- 
voted Christian, and carried out the 
principles of plainness and modest appar- 
el, though there were few to sympathize 
with her in her self-denial and rich Chris- 
tian experience. We regard her as an 
important link in the chain of events 
which brought about a glorious revival 
of Primitive Christianity in her neigh- 
borhood. 

At the time already referred to, there 
was a communion meeting in the Coven- 
try Church. Bro. Fitzwater, not a mem-

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1875. 



ber of the church at the time, took his wife 
to that meeting. He was there brought 
under the power of God, and became 
ieeply convicted of sin. The writer of 
this was living in his family at the time, ! 
and remembers very distinctly, the change 
that was observed in him when he re- 
turned home. His convictions were strong 
and deep, and his distress very apparent. 
But he soon found peace in believing in 
the Lord Jesus Christ, and became a 
brother. Bro. Umstad was baptized, 
about the same time, and not long after 
lim, his wife. Bro. Isaac Price, though 
considerably given to skepticism, was al- 
so converted from the error of his way, 
and was baptized at the same time Bro. 
Umstad was. Brother Price as well as 
Bro. Fitz water was married to Bro. Urn- 
stad's sister. These had all been prom- 
inent men in the community, active in 
business, in politics, and in the general 
affairs of the world. They all became 
active now in the service of their heaven- 
ly Master. Their general intelligence 
and position in society gave them con- 
siderable influence, and that influence 
was now justly consecrated to the promo- 
tion of the glory of Him who had died 
for them, and to the furtherance of the ob- 
jects of his death, the salvation of souls. 
A glorious work of grace followed. 

Bro. Umstad was baptized in the fall I 
of 1831, and in 1834 the Green Tree Church 
was organized, and Bro. Umstad and Bro. 
Isaac Price were called to the ministry. 
We cannot justly say that he began to 
preach at this time, for such was his zeal 
in the cause of the Lord, that from his 
conversion he had been an active member 
of the church, and labored to bring oth- 
ers to the Lord. But now he entered up- 
on the work of the ministry. 

While grace did much in qualifying 
Bro.Umstadfortheministry,andhe could 
with propriety say with Paul, "By the 
grace of God, I am what I am, "there were 
circumstances with which he was connect- 
ed which operated favorably with that 
grace to increase his usefulness. He pos- 
sessed a fair education, having had some 
advantages superior to those afforded by 
common schools in obtaining his educa- 
tion. His pecuniary circumstances were 




such as to relieve him of any business 
that would materially demand his atten- 
tion. He was therefore at liberty to trav- 
el and to devote- much of his time to the 
ministry. And this he did. Bro. John 
Price, the father of Isaac, and Bro. Umstad 
traveled much together, and he received 
much encouragement, instruction and 
help from Bro. Price. They were strong- 
ly attached to each other. He had also 
warm and sympathizing friends in Broth- 
er,! Peter Keyser, of Philadelphia, and 
Sister Sarah Riter of the same place, and 
in Bro. William Price of Indian Creek. 
These were in the ministry before him, 
and took a good deal of interest in him, 
and did all they could to promote his 
usefulness. He was also blessed with a 
most excellent wife, who was an effectual 
helper to him in all the departments of 
his ministerial labor. Their Christian 
home will be remembered .by many of 
the brethren and sisters as a spiritual 
oasis in this desert world, where their 
spirits were often refreshed in holy fel- 
lowship with the faithful, and in the en- 
joyment of the unction from the Holy One. 
The anniversary of his birth occurring on 
New Year's day, it was his custom to ob- 
serve that anniversary in a devotional 
manner ; and for many years after his 
conversion he had prayer meeting in his 
house on the first night of the New Year. 
We presume this custom was obseived to 
the last year of his life. 

Bro. Umstad's labors in winning souls 
were very successful. He labored not on- 
ly in the public ministry, but he also 
labored much in private. He was in- 
stant in season and out of season. The 
cheerfulness of his Christianity, added to 
his natural vivacity, made him an agree- 
able companion. And when in private 
company with his friends, he seldom 
failed to use the opportunity of recom- 
mending Christ to them, and this was 
often done successfully.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1875. 



In his public preaching he was warm 
ind pointed, and his direct appeals to 
tinners were often very strong. He was 
lot much of a theologian in the common 
icceptation of the word. He did not read 
nany theological works. Neither was 
le a man of very extensive reading, 
hough he was not without some literary 
aste, and he possessed a general knowl- 
edge of things. This perhaps was owing 
nore to his close observation of things j 
;han to his reading. 

In his preaching there was little order j 
>r system- It was not neccessary for him i 
:o have a text from which to preach, as he 
xmld preach without any. He was remark- 
able for his individuality. He was himself! 
ind no one else. One of our eminent and ! 
nost useful brethren once said to us, "If 
[ should try to preach or to imitate Bro. 
Umstad, I could do nothing at all." Some 
3f his warmest friends would have pre- 
ferred a little more order and system in 
tiis preaching, and in some other respects, 
:hinking that with some persons and in 
some localities, they would have added 
:o his usefulness. Though his peculiari- 
ties sometimes approached eccentricity, 
they were lo^t sight of in a great meas- 
ure in the light of the excellencies of his 
character, and of the great confidence that | 
his brethren who knew him had in him. j 
He was a man of prayer, and loved to do j 
what we think all preachers should love 
to do, and that was to talk with God be- 
fore he talked to the congregation he was 
to address. On a certain occasion we were 
traveling together in the mountainous re- 
gions of Pennsylvania, on a preaching 
tour, and it was Bro. Umstad's time to 
preach. The congregation had assembled 
in the morning for worship, and upon the 
arrival of the hour for commencing the 
services, and he not being present, the 
people began to get a little uneasy, when 
he came down from the mountain upon 
which he had been praying and wrest- 
ling with God, and prevailed, and brought 
with him the blessing, and preached with 
liberty. 

Bro.Umstad's attachment to the church 
was strong, and his confidence in its doc^ 
trine unwavering. The doctrine of self- 
denial, non-conformity to the world, and 




unreserved obedience to God, though un- 
popular subjects, were not shunned by 
him, but faithfully preached. From the 
beginning of his Christian life and con- 
nection with the church, he affiliated very 
closely in that to which we have referred, 
with the church of which he was a mem- 
ber. Soon after he united with the church, 
he adopted a plain dress, and let his 
beard grow, though the latter was then 
unpopular, and sometimes occasioned re- 
proachful remarks from the world, as few 
persons except the brethren, and even not 
all of them, wore a beard. He once re- 
marked, that he was inclined to levity, 
and the beard restrained that feeling, as 
it helped to remind him of his Christian 
profession. Although he labored to pro- 
mote non-conformity to the world with 
other Christian principles, he was often 
grieved as many other ministers are, that 
his labors were not more successful in 
promoting the doctrine of self-denial. 

He traveled much, and labored much 
in the ministry, and in doing so spent 
considerable time and money. He had 
great confidence in the power and success 
of the Gospel, and encouraged his breth- 
ren to preach, and to preach much. He 
also took a good deal of interest in at- 
tending the Annual Meeting, not so much 
for the purpose of taking an active part 
in its deliberations, as his defective hear- 
ing interfered considerably with him do- 
ing so, as to have fellowship with his 
brethren to whom he was much attached, 
and to avail himself of the opportunity 
afforded him for preaching the Gospel 
as he went to, and returned from, the 
Meeting. 

For some time before his death, Bro. 
Umstad's health had been declining, and 
he was reminded that his active life was 
drawing to a close. The winter preced- 
ing his death, he did not preach any as 
he was under an interdict of his physician 
not to do so. He was out of his house

but little. As he lived close to the meet- 
ing-house, he occasionally met with the 
church, and when he did so, he generally 
gave a short exhortation. He preached 
the last sermon he ever preached to the 
people to whom he had long ministered, 
on the 13th of April, 1873. He preached 
in his usual manner, and with his usual 
freedom, and apparently suffered no in- 
convenience from it. He left home on the 
15th to visit his daughter and her family 
in Baltimore, passing through Philadel- 
phia. In the latter city he met a number 
of his friends for the last time, thought 
they expected to see him upon his return 
from Baltimore, as his improved appear- 
ance in health, gave promise of his return. 
He arrived in Baltimore on the 16th, not 
altogether free from pain. On Sunday 
the 20th he had severe pains, and on Sun- 
day night was taken with paralysis in the 
lower part of his body. He was deliri- 
ous much of the time during his illness, 
and preached and prayed in a manner 
that would have been appropriate under 
other circumstances. His consciousness 
returned at times, and he appreciated his 
situation and knew his attendants. On 
Sunday morning, the 27th, one week after 
he was taken ill, he yielded up his spirit 
and fell asleep in Jesus. He died at the 
residence of his son-in-law, Louis Detrich, 
in the 72nd year of his age. He was 
taken to his home, and on Thursday the 
1st of May his funeral took place. The 
number of persons present, and the very 
general feeling of deep solemnity and ten- 
derness which pervaded the congregation, 
evinced the place he had in the affections 
and esteem of the people among whom he 
had long lived, and to whom he had long 
preached. There were present at his fu- 
neral about twenty ministers of the breth- 
ren, and several of other denominations. 
Bro. J.K.Riner and Bro. Poulson conduct- 
ed the devotional services, the former per- 
forming the principal part.

warmly attached, and so they were to him. 
While his death was felt to be a loss to 
the general brotherhood, it was felt to be 
especially such to his own congregation. 
But the faith that our father Abraham 
had, and which prompted him to say at 
a very trying period of his life, ''The 
Lord will provide," will, we hope, inspire 
such confidence in God, in all his chil- 
dren, as will lead them to hope that he 
will provide for his church in every con- 
ceivable emergency. 

May the mantel of our departed broth- 
er's zeal, humility, and faithfulness, fall 
upon his brethren in the ministry that 
survive him ; and may his go'dly example 
and admonitions be remembered by the 
many among whom he traveled, and for 
whose salvation he labored, 

Several of our friends, knowing we 
were intimately acquainted with Bro.Um- 
stad, suggested to us the propriety of pre- 
paring a memoir of him. From the re- 
gard we feel for the brethren who made 
the suggestion, and from that we feel for 
our departed brother, we have prepared 
this short memoir. It might have been 
much enlarged, but the nature of the pub- 
lication for which the article was de- 
signed is such that short articles are best 
adapted to it. 

"Ah, full of honors as of years, farewell ! 

Thus o'er thy ashes shall thy brethren sigh ; 
Each age, each sex, thy excellence shall tell, 

Which taught the young to live, the old to die!" 



Thus after a long, pious, ana exem- 
plary life, nearly forty years of which 
were spent in the ministry, passed away 
an eminent servant of God, well known 
in our brotherhood, and much beloved by 
those who knew him. To the people of 
Bro. Umtsad's immediate charge, he was

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1875, 



under the supervision of Elder Christian 
Long of Huntingdon County, and David 
Shellenberger of Lost Creek church, Juni- 
ata Co. These two deacons served in 
their office two years, when it was con- 
sidered good to hold an election for a 
preacher. This election was held during 
a ^Love Feast occasion at the house of 
Jacob Royer — son of John — in the Fall of 
1828, and-resulted in the choice of David 
Shellaberger to that office. He, however, 
felt that the responsibilities of the station 
rested too heavily upon him, so that he 
felt unwilling to labor alone in the capac- 
ity of a preacher very long; then the 
brethren held another choice the follow- 
ing year, 1829, arid elected John Eoyer to 
the ministry and Jacob Royer and Hen- 
ry Ruebsam as deacons. These breth- 
ren labored together until, about 1834, 
when another choice was held for a preach- 
er and a deacon, which resulted in the elec- 
tion of Henry Ruebsam to the ministry. 
Joel Royer and Isaac Myers having 
obtained nearly an equal number of voices 
both those brethren were installed as 
deacons. Bro. John Lauber, a preacher 
from Lost Creek Church, moved into this 
church during the year 1825. 

In the year 1837, Bro. David Shella- 
berger moved to Ohio, in the year 1838 
Bro. Henry Ruebsam also moved to Ohio; 
and then in the fall of the year 1839, du- 
ring a Love Feast held at the house of 
John Lauber, another election was held, 
when Isaac Myers was chosen to the min- 
istry, and John Bogenreif and Allen Boy- 
er as deacons. From these facts and dates 
it appears that from 1835 to 1837, David 
Shellaberger, John Royer, Henry Ruebsam 
and John Lauber labored jointly in the 
ministry; and from the Spring of 1838 to 
the fall of 1839, but two of these brethren 
had the care of the church upon them, viz: 
John Royer and John Lauber; Isaac My- 
ers being added by election, and John 
Sprogel, a preacher having moved into 
the church from Chester Co., Pa., the act- 
ive ministerial force was again restored 
to what it had been in 1835 to 38. Bro. 
John Sprogel moved into the church in 
1840. The deacons at this time were Jacob 
Royer, Joel Royer, John Bogenreif and 
Allen Boyer. 




These Brethren labored together joint- 
ly and without any change that we know 
of, about six years, when in the Spring of 
'1846, John Lauber and Allen Boyer re- 
moved to Illinois. Charles Royer and 
John Shively were then elected deacons, 
land in the fall of the same year Elder John 
Royer died. So that at this point of 
|time the official number stood two minis - 
Iter and five deacons. During the year 
;1847, Charles Royer was chosen to the 
! ministry. This was the fifth ministerial 
'election held in this church and this gave 
.the church three ministers and four dea- 
Jcons. In this proportion these brethren 
labored together until JjBglV-^fhen some 
changes occurred again. ---^^out this time 
many accessions to the church wereqbtain- 
jed. Daring this year ^lmSrjroger\and 
Isaac Myers were or dameoTas *T3 1 da^. 
! John Bogenreif was chosen to the minis- 
try, and Robert Badger and Isaac Royer 
deacons. During the Summer of 1853 
John Shively and Joel Royer died. This 
left the church with but three deacons and 
four ministers, until 1859, when another 
election was held and Robert Badger was 
chosen to the ministry and Christian M. 
Shively, deacon. During the year 1858, 
Robert Badger moved to Illinois, and in 
the year 1859, Elder John Sprogel also 
moved to Illinois. So that at this time the 
church had but three preachers and three 
deacons, viz: Isaac Myers, Charles Roy el- 
and John Bogenreif, ministers. Jacob 
Royer, Isaac Royer and Christian M. 
Shively Deacons. June 3rd 1859 John L. 
Beaver was chosen to the ministry. In 
the fall of 1859 Adam Beaver was chosen 
to be a deacon. May 3 0th lp fl&yAdam 
Beaver was elected T tTf ffe ministry and 
John G. Royer a deacon. John G. Royer 
moved to Ohio in the Spring of 1863. 

June 18th 1863, Jacob S. Shively and 
George W. Myers were chosen deacons. 
This election brought the official num- 
ber to five preachers and five deacons.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1875. 



In the Spring of 1807, Preacher Samuel 
ongenccker moved into this church from Adams 
!n., Pa., and on October 8th of the same year, 
Villiam K. Moore and Peter II. Beauer were 
hosen deacon?. October 9th 18G8, G^o. AV r . INIy- 
rs was elected to the ministry. June 1st 1800, 
acob E. lloyer was chosen deacon, and Jacob 
Loyer Sr., was about this time retired to the supera- 
nnuated position, or excused from active service as 
eacon. William K. Moore moved to Illinois in 
e Spring of this year. October 14th 1871, John 
Sogenrief was reinstated to the ministry. October 
871, Jacob Book was chosen to the (ffice of dea- 
on. During the year 1872, Samuel Longenecker 
loved to Iowa and John Bogenrief died. So we 
nd June 1st 1874, that Jacob lloyer has held the 
ffice of deacon now 40 years, and Isaac Myers the 
flice of preacher 35 years, 24 years of which time 
| has been an Elder. Anna Beaver is the only 
ving member who was present at the first nieet- 
jg of the Brethren in Buffalo Valley, held at the 
onse of her father Oct., 1816. The Church has 
ow in active service five ministers and six deacons, 
eptember 23rd 1874, Charles Royer was ordained 
) the eldership in this church. This I believe 
ompletes the record of this church as accurately 
s 1 am able to obtain it at this period of time, 
'ragmen tary records have been kept only since the 
ear 1858, all the other facts and dates were collect- 
d From the recollections of the oldest members, 
nd they are probably correct in all important par- 
iculars. Since I have been at the labor and ex- 
ense of time to gather up those early traditions of 
lie church, I desire to put them on record perma- 
ently, that they may not fade from memory again, 
tid be consigned to oblivion. P. II. Beaver.

Computation of Time. 
By J. N. Beer. 



In this time-world, our civil and so- 
ial relations and communications ren- 
ler it necessary to have some way to 
neasure and reckon Time. In all ages 
f the world, and among all nations, 
here have been modes of computing 
pine. The methods used by different 
lations, and sometimes by the same na- 
ion at different times, have varied con- 
iderably. Some of these differences we 
shall notice, and will call attention to 
he year : 

Yeatc. — The year, as now reckoned 
>y most civilized nations, commences 
tbout eight days after the winter sol- 
Itice. This is altogether arbitrary, as 
here is nothing in the nature of things 
lemanding it to be so. There are differ- 
nt years in use. The Anomalistical 
/ear is the time of the earth's revolution 
rom perihelion to perihelion — 365 days, 
5 hours, 13 minutes and 48 seconds. The 
common year contains 365 days; and the 
nssextile, or leap year, 366 days. Every 
i^ear of the current reckoning that is even- 
y divisible by 4, except such as are 
livisible by 100 but not by 400, is a leap 
rear. The intercalary day is placed at 
•heendof February.— Julian Year, the 
pear adopted by Julius Caesar, having a 
nean length of 365 days and 6 hours. 
Gregorian Year, the Julian year, as 
corrected, and now used among most 
civilized nations. From the difference 
between the Julian and Gregorian year 
irises the distinction of Old and New 
Style. At first the Roman year consist- 
ad of ten months, or 304 days. King Nu- 
aia made it twelve months, or 355 days, 
every second year adding 22 or 23 days 
py turns. Julius Ccesar, their iirst em- 
peror, established his calendar, accord- 
ing to which every fourth year consisted 
Df 366 days, and every other year of 365 
lays. This mean length of 365 days, 6 
aours, was about 11 minutes in a year 
X)0 much, and had run the reckoning 
brward 10 days. Pope Gregory XIII, 
reformed the calendar by retrenching 10 



days in October, 1582, to bring the ver- 
nal equinox to the same day as at the 
time of the Council of Nice, A. D. 325. 
In Great Britain in 1751, by an act of 
Parliament, this reformation was adopt- 
ed; and in 1752, in September, 11 days 
were retrenched, and the 3rd was reckon- 
ed the 14th. Hence we have the New 
Style. The tropical year is the time of 
the earth's revolution from the vernal 
equinox to the same equinox again, or 
365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, 46.04 sec- 
onds. The siderial year is the time in 
which the sun, departing from any fixed 
star returns to the same star, which is 
365 days, 6 hours, 9 minutes and 9.7 sec- 
onds. The common, lunar year, 12 lu- 
nar civil months, contains 354 days ; the 
embolismic or intercalary lunar year, 
384 days; but the lunar astronomical 
year, 12 lunar, synodical months, con- 
tains 354 days, 8 hours, 48 minutes and 
36 sec. The civil year is the year which 
any nation has adopted for the compu- 
tation of Time. The civil year, in Eng- 
land, formerly commenced on the 25th 
day of March. This continued through- 
out the British dominions till the intro- 
duction of the New Style, in 1752, since 
which it begins on the first day of Janu- 
ary. It is seen, therefore, that the pres- 
ent mode of reckoning time is compara- 
tively modern. 

It would be interesting to review the 
different reckonings used by different na- 
tions; but want of space forbids the no- 
tice of more than a few. Most of the 
Mohammedan nations reckon their year 
by 12 lunar months, and hence in about 
35 years the beginning of their year runs 
back through all the seasons. The an- 
cient Hebrews reckoned by the lunar 
year; but by the use of an intercalary 
month every third year, their year was 
rendered virtually solar. Whether the 
commencement of their year was deter- 
mined by the appearance of certain stars 
or by other signs it is difficult to deter- 
mine; but it is certain that it did not va- 
ry much. From the time of the Exodus, 
they had two reckonings, which we may 
speak of as the sacred and the civil. 
The sacred year began about the vernal

equinox, varying a little. Of this year, 
the 1st month was Abib or Nisan; the 2d, 
Zifor Jair; 3rd, Sivan; 4th, Thammuz; 
5th, Ab; 6th, Elul;7th, Ethanim, or Tiz- 
ri, which was the first mouth of the civil 
year; 8th, Bui, or Marchesvan; 9th, 
Chrisleu; 10th, Thebet; 11th, Shebat; 
12th, Adar. Every third year they add- 
ed a month composed of the odd days. 
This month they called Yeader, or second 
Adar. 

Months. — Our method of reckoning 
months is well known. The Hebrew 
month was lunar. Their months com- 
menced with the first observance of the 
new moon; or if it was cloudy, they reck- 
oned 30 days for a month. Very early 
they were able to determine on what day 
their months would begin. See 1 Sam. 
20:5-27. 

Days. — Our days are reckoned from 
midnight to midnight ; but the Hebrews 
reckoned sunset as the close of one day 
and the introduction of the next. "From 
even unto even, shall ye celebrate your 
Sabbath." Lev. 23:32. He who would 
understand the history of any nation as 
it relates to time, must acquaint himself 
with their mode of computation; and so 
must he who would understand the sa- 
cred Scriptures acquaint himself with the 
method of reckoning time as used by the 
sacred writers. 



"One Hundred Years Ago." 



One hundred years ago brother Chris- j 
topher Saur published his thirty- seventh 
Annual edition of Almanacs, in German- ' 
town, near Philadelphia, Pa., a copy of 
which now lies before me. Although it 1 
is printed in the German language, I will I 
endeavor to make a few notes from it for 
such as may wonder what a Brethren's 
Almanac was like a century ago. 

In form it is similar to the ordinary 
almanac now in use. On the outside of 
the paper cover is the picture of a man 
flying, bearing a banner with the inscrip- 
tion "War and rumors of war," which 
proved a true prediction, as the war for 
Independence commenced in April of the 
same year. The inside of the cover con- 



tains a list of the 
England, which I 
it is given :

Also several works of Zerrett L. Sta 
gen, Haberman's, and several others, with 
prices attached. It also contains a form 
of Wills, Notes, Receipts, etc. , the Eng^ 
lish alphabet in Roman and Italics. Theq 
follow some medical recipes, and finally] 
winds up with a few State affairs and a 1 
short history of Oliver Cromwell. 

Such is the character of the Almanac] 
of a century ago. Compared with many 
other things, the change has not been so 
great; yet the few that remain preserved 
are considered valuable relics. So will 
also the literature of the present day be- 
come more valuable as it becomes older 
and scarcer, which fact ought to awaker 
a sense of responsibility unto all writers 
and publishers, that those who may livt 
after us may learn wisdom from the pres 
ent generation.

Echoes from Eternity— Soliloquies. 

" Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity." 

Oh, must this be the sentence to greet 
mine ears at the Judgment? I worshiped 
in the name of Jesus with many that are 
here with me, but now I see our folly. 
We loved our church and her boasted 
grandeur more than Jesus. We loved 
the world too much, and sought the praise 
of men more than the praise of God. 
Led by the wholesome counsel, as I 
thought, of our pastor, I was content and 
at ease; but now I see I should have 
heeded all the counsels of Jesus and 
learned of Him. He don't know us! Oh, 
no ! we did not go in the "lowly" ways 
with Him, and He would not come up to 
us, so we never got acquainted. Deceived 
in life, deceived at death, and here most 
wofnlly deceived ! Oh, what anguish of 
soul! and see, too, those whom wethought 
unworthy of our society, and who seemed 
to us over precise in their religion, enter- 
ing in — Jesus knows them ! Now we see 
how true it is that "he that exalteth him- 
self shall be abased; and he that hum- 
bleth himself shall be exalted." We 
laughed at those whom now we envy. I 
would not be with them in life, but now I 
would give worlds, if mine, to be one in 
their triumphant march to glory. Too 
late! Too late now to gain the prize. 
An eternity, and oh, what a dark one, in 
which to repent of our folly ! And I, too, 
must "depart;" I that gave of my abun- 
dance to objects of charity, in my dying 
hour donated thousands for the world's 
good? -I see now my mistake. I loved 
the sound of the trumpet that heralded to 
the world my good deeds,while that poor 
pilgrim, entering yonder, did little deeds 
of kindness out of a heart of love, in such 
a way that his "left hand" knew it not. 
Now he hears the voice, "Inasmuch as ye 
have done it unto one of the least of these, 
ye have done it unto me." Now I see 
the motive in charity is everything and 
quantity as nothing. • 

Must I, with all this throng, be turned 
away from the entrance way to glory? 
I who professed to love God, and enjoyed 
the shelter of the church for many long 



years in the world yonder? I hear the 
sentence and must depart. Oh, now I 
see my folly! I loved mammon more 
than God! I made it a rule to strive for 
earthly riches, and serve God when con- 
venient. Oh, cursed love which is the 
root of all evil— upon the breakers of 
gold and silver my bark has been wreck- 
ed! Woe! Woe! is my doom to all 
eternity! And with the same thing I, 
too, must go. Oh, what a terrible disap- 
pointment! I lived and died a member 
of the visible church, and Christ not 
know me here? To my anguished, burn- 
ing soul comes home the truth, I loved 
the world too much! I was persuaded 
by Satan that non-conformity to the 
world in all matters was useless. I 
loved to please the world more than the 
church — heeded not the counsels of my 
dear brethren and sisters further than to 
hold my station in the church. Oh, if I 
only had been obedient in all things, and 
had been "crucified" to the world, walked 
with Jesus in humility, then He would 
have known me. Eather than suffer for 
the sake of my Redeemer I have forfeit- 
ed a crown of glory ! 

Amid the din and lamentations of the 
disappointed souls, shall be heard happy 
voices. Hark! the voice of Jesus sounds 
in tones of sweetest melody, "Come, ye 
blessed of my Father, inherit the king 
dom prepared for you." Oh, father and 
mother, long separated, but here we meet 
to part no more. See! my little brother 
and sister in their glory with Jesus. Here 
in Heaven we shall all be re-united. Glo- 
ry to God who giveth us the victory. Oh, 
my dear brother and sister, home at last ! 
our trials and conflicts in the world were 
great; but now together we shall dwell 
in peace and love. See those that laughed 
at us in their pride must go down to 
woe. Having fought the good fight and 
won the victory, we will love Jesus ever- 
more. 

Dear husband — wife — we strike hands 
in glory. Together on earth we had our 
conflicts with sin— togther we prayed — 
together we fought the enemy, side by 
side we walked in love; but death sev- 
ered the bond, and here in the land of

we meet thee here. Oh! what a joyful ! 
meeting. Your labors and love for Jesus 
brought us to look to Him, and in Him \ 
we trusted. AH, all, home in Heaven!; 
Jesus reigns! He reigns to give his sub- ' 
jects glory and immortality. 

Header, touch the strings of thy con- ! 
science with the rod of power in God's ! 
word, and listen well to the sound. Echoes 
from eternity will give an answer that 
ultimately will culminate into realities 
unchangeable as the immutability of 
God. J. S. Floey. 

Buffalo, Col. 



Eobert Burns frequently had times of 
serious reflection, in one of which he was 
under deep conviction and in great alarm. 
The seed of the Word had begun to grow. 
He so tight counsel from one called a min- 
ister of the Gospel. Alas, that in that 
crisis of his history he should have trust- 
ed his helm to the hands of such a pilot ! 
This so-called minister laughed at the 
poet's fears — bade him dance them away 
at balls, drown them in the bowls of 
wine; fly from these phantoms to the 
arms of pleasure. He followed his ad- 
vice ; and "the lusts of other things" en- 
tering in choked the Word. — Gutlirie.
